The scale is creeping up and I have been unwilling to buckle down and do something about it. How long am I going to let this stubbornness rule my life? It doesn't help that it is gloomy outside and my neck and shoulders ache from rheumatism.
Enough self-pity already. Everyone has some cross to bear. My choices rule, so let's see how much responsibility I am willing to accept today.
Doesn't sound like the attitude of a person determined to make life happen on purpose, does it? "Just do it" is tracking across my mind.
I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by and letting me vent. I do appreciate it. Hugs from Janet
I woke up this morning and decided I wanted freedom from tracking. I ate what I wanted when I wanted it; but tonight I feel bloated and stuffed.
I talked to my 'chosen sister', Pat, and she said to track it anyway and face the music. So I did. This is day #115 of tracking and I am not willing to give up my ongoing streak. And I am not willing to give back my progress either.
I have had no fruit or vegetables yet today, so I am going to have an orange and some carrots before I go to bed. I don't have to wait until morning. I need some nutrition tonight.
The people on this site keep me going and reel me in when I am floating away. I thank you very much for being there for me.
I feel renewed hope again. And my journey goes on. Take care and hugs from Janet in chilly Illinois.
I chose to eat too much salty food yesterday and the scale is up about 2# because of it. I accept that; but what happened?
I woke up yesterday morning with the willingness to work on a business project that I have been procrastinating about, so I went into "all or nothing" mode, determined to finish it in one day. There really was no rush. Realistically I have another week before it should be done, but old habits die hard. I did finish the project; but I had no room in my brain for focusing on my food intake.
By the time I took a lunch break, I barely cared what I ate. Then my hubby made duck and noodles, which was very good, but also very salty. So why not have a second serving?
By evening I was able to get my wits about me and finish the day with some string cheese and an apple.
Today is a new day to focus on my health and well-being. Time rolls on and I will get where I am wanting to go.
I was writing a blog last night when my computer locked up. The following is a shortened version of my weekend.
I started to turn the wrong way down a one-way street and almost caused an accident.
Had words with my husband about his GPS after he made an "insulting" comment about me being inferior to his "guide in the box."
Managed to get in 7000+ steps on my pedometer by walking around Wal-Mart.
I spent all morning doing computer maintenance so I could get back on Spark.
A much-needed nap just hit the spot. Then I made a sandwich and cut up veggies for supper. I am very grateful to have made it through these unusual days with my streak still going. Day #103 of tracking every bite and Day #6 of pre-planning my food consumption. It can be done. The next challenge will be traveling with a friend to Ohio to attend a funeral. I think I can get through it.
What's more I think you can get through whatever is coming your way. Stick to your principles and do what needs to be done. Then share your success with us. I love hearing about others facing the challenges and coming out better for it.
Thank you for stopping by. Hugs from Janet in sunny but cold Illinois.
